Veterans Day Celebrations
Bill and I didn't participate in the Vancouver Veterans Day ceremonies or parade this year since he was working in the morning and we headed up to Puyallup to celebrate Tim and Samantha's wedding. But we did celebrate in our own way the next weekend.
I was pleased to see pictures of my family and what they were doing for Veterans Day as well. Tom spoke to all the 5th graders at Maddy's school. So fun to see him sharing his experiences as a navigator in the Air Force with a new generation. Sherrill and Jeff went to the Wright State University Veterans Ball and it was fun to see pictures of them in their dress mess.
I got an unexpected surprise of Suzi and Terry traveling down to Portland on a whim. So I went down to join them for breakfast on Saturday morning. Fun seeing them two weekends in a row! That evening we had our annual Veterans Day celebration with Jeff and Julie at Willamette View Assisted Living community. There were ten of us that enjoyed dinner and the evening together.
